In the last week it seems as though my DD has forgotten how to latch on. My nipples are more sore now than they were in the first few weeks when we were having difficulty with her latch. My left nipple has a small scab and my right one has a tiny little blister. I didn't have problems like this in the beginning. We've been nursing without problems for months now.
The nipple with the scab on it seems like she gets mad with that breast and has pulled off and bitten me! She doesn't have any teeth yet, but OUCH that hurts!
The right breast, it's like she doesn't want to open her mouth up. She wants to "slurp" my nipple in like a straw. I hold back so that she will open her mouth, or I take her off the breast and make her start over, but she gets so upset she will scream and cry and not suck until I let her do it "her way".
I'm in a lot of pain, not sure what to do, but this now makes me want to wean her and put her on a bottle. How do I correct this? Why is she doing it? I know she is teething.
